Marion O. Flinn (nee Raymo), of Saint Charles, Missouri, passed away Thursday, January 26, 2023, at the age of 84. Loving wife of the late Donald Flinn; beloved daughter of the late Goldie Ardenia and Leonard R. Raymo Sr.; cherished sister of Leonard R. (the late Virginia) Raymo, Jr., Larry (the late Norine) Raymo, Freida Raymo, Billy (the late Carolyn) Raymo, Marvin (Bonnie) Raymo, Rex (the late Donna) Raymo, and Janice (the late Leonard) Rogers; dear sister-in-law of Fern Brnachfield-Mreen, Dorothy (Denny) Copeland, Carol (Robin) Flinn. Marion was a dear aunt, cousin, and friend to many. She was also preceded in death by her siblings, Dale (Phyllis) Raymo, Lester Paul Raymo, Bruce Raymo, and Joan (Pete) Boyd.
Marion worked for the Ft. Zumwalt School District and retired after 33 years as a Third Grade Teacher. She loved her students and enjoyed every day she spent teaching the bright minds of the future.
As a woman of faith, Marion was very active in her church. She produced the church bulletins every week and often led worship when she played the piano and sang. In her spare time, she loved to write poetry and was a very talented artist with oil painting, acrylics, and watercolors. Some of her paintings graced the halls at Barnes St. Peters Hospital. She also sold much of her work at the Art Extravaganza.
Marion enjoyed gardening fruits and vegetables in her younger years. She loved sewing and crocheting, and she made her own clothes, draperies, sheets, and anything else she could put together with needle and thread. To relax, she enjoyed crossword puzzles and word-finds.
Marion loved people and loved spending time with her family and friends, and her little miniature poodle, Tippy. She was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Memorial contributions may be made in Marion's name to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
